We worked with the Orland Park location. Gregory was our photographer and Ivan was our videographer. Both of them were amazing! The photos they took were gorgeous, they moved through shots efficiently, and even our guests raved about the photographers- something I had never heard of before! Gregory had great ideas for photos but also let me decide what I wanted. He made us feel comfortable and was such a fun person to work with. Request Gregory and Ivan! You will not be disappointed!

Hello. We went to Fred Fox Photographies in Orland Park, IL for our Photography and Videography for our wedding in February. Our photographer was Anna Thielen. We insisted on using her since all of her work looked great. She did a free engagement photo shoot for us, she was very fast but very precise. The pictures looked nice. When it was time for our wedding, she was very respectful, kind, on time, and most importantly all of the pictures came out AWESOME. In our video, I even noticed Anna had a lot of fun at our wedding. You can tell that she enjoys her job! Anna did such a wonderful job and we would HIGHLY recommend her and the Fred Fox Studios to all!! Thank you, Anna!

John Brock did our Videography, a bit quiet but very nice and respectful. We are pretty sure our video will turn out great because it seemed like he was recording everything. I can not wait to see it in 2 weeks. We are very excited and would recommend John and Fred Fox studios for videography. All in all, everything turned out perfect.

Thank you Anna and John!!!!!

Fred Fox Photography made the decision very easy to choose them as our vendor for capturing our special day. Cindy Countryman the manager was beyond friendly, patient and accommodating whenever we had questions (and we had a lot!) Their prices were very fair and hard to beat!
Anna Thielen was our photographer and she was nothing less than extremely impressive. She was professional and friendly. I feel like I've known her for years. Anna took almost 2,000 pictures for us to choose from! They all turned out AMAZING! She never let us take a bad picture. I loved that she coached me through the photographs by telling me how to hold my flowers and told me to move them to the left or right a bit for a better picture. She is a perfectionist like myself and it made the pictures beautiful and absolutely perfect! I know if I was photographing a bride, I'd never let her take her posed pictures with a crooked necklace or her head too high or tilted too much and Anna definitely does the same and looks out for your best interest. She does all this while maintaining the bride & grooms own personalities when taking the posed pics! It's very obvious that she takes a lot of pride in her work and it shows in her pictures!! I would, and I have, recommend her & Fred Fox Photography to all my family and friends!
We also had the videographer services through Fred Fox. We are still waiting for the DVD to be completed. Our videographer was extremely friendly and professional. I can't wait to recap our special day when the DVD is ready!

Photographer: Anna T.
The day after the photos from our wedding were posted on Facebook page for the band that we hired,by the photog, WITOUT our permission. In the next 2 days there were 50+ photos that were posted to the photographer's PERSONAL page without our knowledge. Guests and strangers had seen the photos before us! This truly was a horrible privacy violation.The photographer exploited people in the wedding party for her own personal gain. Some of the wedding party members are well known for their jobs, and she used this for her own personal purposes I feel. I work in the area and I had explained at booking that I keep boundries between my prof. and private life, and yet, there were photos our wedding on FB for all to see. There were photos of alcohol use, suggestive dancing, etc that were not meant for everybody to see. When I contacted the office and spoke to Cindy, she said to me that the photog had been talked to about this in the past. Two hours later she called and said the photos had been removed from Facebook(too little too late!). She retracted what she had said earlier and said they had never had an issue like this in the past! She acted at this time like it was no big deal. I was given a number to contact Terry at corp. I left multiple messages and finally called a 3rd time and happened to get him on the phone. He assured me this was serious, but said "I can't give you any money back, and I need your amount due to release your photos." It became very clear what his agenda was. He also advised me that "in a day or two your guests won't even remember this happened". I asked to have all of our photos on a disc as he had promised. He reluctantly agreed, but strongly encouraged me to consider allowing Fred Fox to sell prints to guests as the company "should not be penalized for the actions of Anna". They sub-contracted the job to her. He finally agreed and released the files after the final balance was paid.

This review specifically pertains to the Orland Park Fred Fox Studios.
The photos and video footage turned out lovely. Dealing with the lady at the desk within the Orland Park office was something of a nightmare. Be sure to ask lots of questions and take notes. Review what you are paying for. Be prepared to not get the photos for a solid 3 months after your wedding and the video after 4. Even before receiving our CD and the rights to the photos, our pictures took 7 weeks to upload online. Our video had to be sent back and redone 3 times because it was missing specific features we paid for. Overall, not the best deal for value and timeliness. On the other hand, I must commend the beautiful work done by Photographer Gregory and Videographer Gregory. It's specifically because of their wonderful product that I would recommend this product to a friend (with the above precautions). The photographer and videographer were wonderful day of!

1.7/5.0
I was very disappointed with Fred Fox photography.. The photographer was nice and took great pictures, and I liked the idea of that the pictures were up in 10 days for my guests to order, but with the price of the prints being so expensive, not alot of my guests ordered, and that goes for myself and my husband as well... After dishing out to have a elegant wedding, and paying a chunk to have them take pictures, the last thing the bride and groom is thinking about is dishing out more money to the photgraphy to order pictures when the event is all set and over.. They ran no promotions , and we paid full price for our pictures , just as my guests did.. We had the same treatment as if we were a guest at our own wedding... I think they need to explain more about their packages to future brides, and get with the times on what people should be really paying or can afford for prints ! Their so worried about getting their money 60 days before the event, when they should be more worried about how to make this bride happy with there services.. I am happy that friends of our family's took pictures, because without those pictures, we would have nothing to remember our day on !

Carol and Lisa at the Schaumburg office were always very helpful!! Our photographer was Ruben and we loved him! He got amazing pictures of our fall wedding day. I was overly please with how amazinf the pictures looked. I wanted to get married in the fall my whole life and was hoping for good outside wedding photos!!! Well I got them! They are perfect and capture all the memories of the day! We also included the videography in our bundle and that was the best thing we could have done. It was so exciting to get to watch the big day all over again and have it all to watch and share with family for years! Fred Fox was FANTASTIC!!!!!!

My husband and I are more than satisfied when we finally saw our wedding pictures less than two weeks after the ceremony.

Jose G was our photographer and he was very good, professional, punctual and took more pictures than we have expected. He called two days before the wedding to ask who the guests will be and who will be there from my family. We had a small and simple wedding but his photos showed differently. The photos ended up looking as if we're in a bigger and completely different place. I would recommend Fred Fox photography.

We got married downtown in the Gold Coast area and used Joe L from Fred Fox Photography. Not only did everyone love Joe's fun personality, but he took fantastic photos of the wedding. My husband and I decided to pay per hour for just the digital rights to the pictures as well as a proof book. We had no issues working with anyone at the office, Lucy was very nice and helpful, and didn't feel pressured to buy more than what we wanted or needed. I also liked that I got to choose my photographer, meet with him and speak with him prior to the wedding. I was able to show him the types of shots and style I was looking for. Joe L, really nailed it. We had so many wonderful, cool, journalistic shots...it was so hard to even create an album since there were so many great shots. We weren't into portraits at first...but they were so non-standard and fun, that we did them anyway. They turned out awesome and we were happy with our overall experience with the company, the price, the quality and most importantly with our photographer.

I had a wonderful experience with Fred Fox for my photography and videography needs. Greg(video) and Virginia (photo) were the BEST!! I selected Virginia after comparing her portfolio with all the other photographers at Fred Fox. Both Greg and Virginia were so patient, professional, funny, flexible, and helpful on the day of the wedding! They arrived on time, helped difuse 'nervousness', and went above and beyond the quality of service that I expected. Carol, the manager at the studio we went to (Schaumberg) was very accomodating, sweet, and professional. I am sooo glad that we chose Fred Fox, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for quality service to document their special day!!

My aunt provided us with a videographer as our wedding gift. Fred Fox had done her stepdaughter's wedding and they were very pleased so that is who she chose for us. Joe did an AMAZING job! He was very nice and personable. He seemed to get every detail, yet stayed out of sight and was not a distraction to us or our guests. Before he left, he asked us if we needed anything else and we said we thought he had taken care of everything yet he still stayed past his contracted time to capture a few more moments of dancing. I would highly recommend Fred Fox Studios, especially Joe!

We worked with Fred Fox (Luis in Northbrook) on our video, we haven't seen the final thing yet but I am sure it will be GREAT. Down fall, at times less responsive. Upside - goes the extra mile, works hard, creative, fun, easy to work with and has cinematography type talent! Would definitely recommend!

Fred Fox Photography was our vendor for photos and videography as well. My brother got married in 2008 and my parents enjoyed their service so much we wanted to try them again. To say we were pleased with the outcome of the photos and video would be an understatement. We were happy to work with JoAnna for photos and Kevin for video. We're so thankful to see all the precious moments that were captured on film and video that we may have missed. Both were very professional to work with and I would refer them to anyone!

True Perfection! My husband and I were truly amazed and were totally satisfied. Anna was our Photographer and she was absolutely amazing and a true professional. Anna called us prior to the Wedding and just had a great conversation with us in relation to our Wedding. She captured all the photos that we dream of and her creativeness added such a classy flair and really brought out the best of the Wedding. We suggested a lot of candid shots and she got those along with the posed photos that were simple breathtaking!!! We could not have asked for more. Pricing was great and were most affordable for us and for our guests. Quality is superior, proofs and cd were clear and very professional and expensive looking. Bride & Grooms Fred Fox is a must!!!

We could not be happier about choosing Fred Fox and Felipe for our 5/28/11 wedding!! We were clueless about how to choose a wedding photographer, and we heard many horror stories about how expensive the wedding photographer would be, and how unhappy a lot of our friends had been with their wedding photographers. We met with Luci in the Northbrook office, who was one of the friendliest and easiest people to work with throughout our entire wedding planning! She is very thorough, listens non-judgmentally, and was incredibly flexible about working within our budget without sacrificing quality. She helped us narrow down our choices to a few photographers, based on our general preferences and our opinions of their portfolios online.

Luci helped us decide on Felipe, whom we absolutely love! He was thoughtful and artistic, and his suggestions for poses produced beautiful, superb quality pictures. Several of our guests complimented us on how understated and hard-working Felipe was (my family was very impressed that he was snapping pictures right up until the last second of the reception), and how incredible our wedding pictures turned out. He took wonderful formal, posed pictures of us and our families, as well as a lot of natural, spontaneous moments during the wedding and reception. We plan to use Fred Fox (and Felipe) for our next big special occasion. Highly recommend!!!

Also, when I received my album, I fell in love all over again. The designer did exactly what I asked for and more. Overall great experience and would definitely recommend Fred Fox to others!!!

Thank you for all of the beautiful pictures you took on our wedding day. You caught us not only in “the moment,” but in many little moments, as well. The range of photos you took, from candid to posed to close ups of the details, provided us with a wide variety of pictures to choose from. We look at the pictures often, and each time, it takes us back to what a wonderful day we had. You truly are a gifted photographer, and we are still getting rave reviews from our guests about how beautiful the pictures turned out. Thank you for everything you did to create such lasting memories for us and our families, and for adding your magical touch to our special day.

I truly don't know where to begin. After searching for numerous photographers on the internet, we decided to use Fred Fox Photography because of the beautiful photos they featured on their website. WRONG! We purchased the advertised special of $695 for an all-day photographer. I should have know better right there! Although the photographer had a great sense of humor, he was no more qualified to take wedding photos than my 7 year old grandson. He took no posed photos, and 99% of the photos were taken with him standing so far away from the bride and groom that it looked like they were 2 blocks away. Very few close up photos. Instead of having numerous photos of the bride and groom together, he chose to have dozens of them standing by themselves without taking any effort to pose them. The angle of the photos during the wedding ceremony was pathetic. The best photo of all was a close-up of the wedding cake. Everything else sucked. Stay FAR AWAY from this guy. They ruined the day, a once in a lifetime memory of a special day forever gone.

We were able to afford this service due to an internet sale that they had. There were a few attempts to upsell us, but they did accept our no, rather than continue pushing.
We had Abby H who was a wonderful personality, and an amazing photographer (we have yet to see our shots though - they estimate 4 weeks). She seemed to have fun and jump right in with photos when she arrived. She was very good at co-ordinating everything and gave us some options when we didn't know what we wanted to do. She was very patient and wonderful to work with, also she did every little thing that I asked (for example I asked her to go shoot some of my friends that were not comng up to our backdrop) and was happy to do so.

Our experience with Fred Fox was the WORST ever!!! We talked a lot what we wanted to see in our pictures and video before the wedding but we got everything wrong! That was big mistake to work with them - there are so many great photographers and videographers for less price! Our video wasn't made creative. The editing is terrible. It seems like the person who made the video just cut pieces of it and put it together didn't even look, and didn't even care what result is going to be. And after that they told us that they could fix it, but we need pay for it. Why do we need to pay for fixing their mistakes? And before the wedding we told that we want to have raw footage and we paid for it, but after the wedding they send us just one DVD with wedding video without the raw footage, and when we called them about that they told us that we didn't pay for it. There are no professional people in Fred Fox - they liars, and they don't care about their clients. They ruined our memories and wasted our money. Now I need to pay somebody else to fix their mistakes!!! If I just could change it I WOULD NEVER WORK WITH FRED FOX!!!

Went to my friends wedding back in august and the DJ had pronounced the wedding parties' name incorrectly at least six times. To add injury to insult, they edited the best man's speech making the correction, out of his speech. That's fantastic work to LEAVE the DJ's hack work in the video but then chose to edit out the correction. Real professional!!!! Never again!!!

We were able to choose our photographer since we had a few recommendations from friends. Jose was wonderful. We have tons of great photographs for the day. He called the Monday before the wedding and took the time to ask who was in the bridal party, who are family members were, and many other things. I was confident he would get all the pictures I was hoping for and he did. He was very personable all day long and we kept having people come up to us during the wedding commenting on how great he was.

Fred Fox was amazing from start to finish! They were recommended to me. I went to visit their Northbrook office and met with Luci. She was so sweet and helpful. Gave me all the information I needed. I described our wedding and she suggested some photographers she thought would be great for my event. We went with Joe L and HE WAS SO AWESOME!!! My entire family loved him. He has the best personality! So fun and easy going and extremely professional and knowledgeable. After the wedding, the photos and videos were ready in a timely manner. The photos were available online super fast too. Fred Fox has been around for so long and there's a reason why. They take care of their customers so well. We were so happy with everything that my best friend used Fred Fox for her wedding the following year and used Joe L too. :) I would highly recommend Fred Fox to anyone.

I love my pictures and am working on my album currently. Its hard to decide which pictures to choose because I love them all!
You definately get what you pay for! Quality.

The process of selecting the album was also easy since Carol took the time to explain our options and encouraged us to have fun with it! I will definitely use Fred Fox in the future for other photography needs.

In the office, Luci was great to work with - she was patient and flexible, and answered all of our questions. We appreciated that she did not try to push us to buy a more expensive package. Our photographer, Claudio V, was phenomenal - our pictures are fantastic, and Claudio was relaxed and professional throughout the day. Highly recommended!!

HORRIBLE!!!!!! Worst choice vendor for my entire wedding! The photographer we had took horrible pictures. My flower girl could have taken better pictures than him. I contacted Fred Fox to complain and all they do is say that their photographers are great and it's pretty much my problem. Then they ask you, by a non personalized letter, to pay the balance and pick up your pictures. NEVER EVER CHOOSE THEM! HORRIBLE IN EVERY ASPECT. THEIR WEBSITE AND PHOTO EXAMPLES ARE JUST A SCAM. Their photography is not as talented as their "demos."

Ruben from Fred Fox photographed our wedding on April 11, 2010. Ruben is Fred Fox's star photographer. Usually you would pay a premium to have his services, but we lucked out that we booked last minute and he was available. We thought he did a great job with our pictures. We loved the outside city shots we got and some really cool lighting shots in church. The only drawback was that we did not have as many kid shots at the reception. This was something I wanted, but never mentioned to Ruben personally unfortunately. Overall he did a great job and was very personable and fun. I would definitely recommend him!

I absolutely loved FredFox. I had such a wonderful experience with Luci (the manager) and Ruben (our photographer). They were both so great. Here are all of the reasons I would recommend FredFox to anyone:

1) I never felt pressured to make a decision or to pay for a service I didn't need.
2) Luci was there to give me advice and help me figure out the pro-cons to decisions like adding a 2nd photographer (which we did) and video (which we did not)
3) They are reasonably priced - i received quality photos, excellent service and an exceptional keepsake book
4) most importantly - my pictures are beautiful. I feel like FredFox is far superior to many other studios in the Chicago area. Several friends got married around the same time as my husband and I and we had a better experience with our photographer and have better pictures to show.

My husband and I had a great experience working with Fred Fox and our photographer Ruben. Ruben is very knowledgable and creative and did a great job with our pictures. Our church limited where the photographer could stand during the ceremony but he was still able to get great shots of the church. Additionally, Ruben is very experienced with digital photography and his talents show in our wedding album which is amazing. We love to have our day documented in such a beautiful way.

Fred Fox was amazing. I had the chance to work with photographer Abby, while my husband worked with Rich. Both photographers were outstanding. Both Abby and Rich were very assertive to what our needs were and what we wanted. They took the time to work with us and were very patient. They both did call a week before the wedding and asked us what our plans were for the ceremony and reception, as well as the "get ready spot". They were on time, and actually early. They were respectful. I would recommend both Rich and Abby...and Fred Fox to anyone for any type of occasion.

We used Ruben Ramos and he was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Our pictures are beautiful, which you can tell from his profile on their website. What made Ruben stand out was how much fun he was. I was very stressed prior to our wedding and during the ceremony. He spend 3 hours going around our venue with us taking pictures and it was SO MUCH FUN! It made me relaxed and able to chill out and enjoy our reception to the fullest. I would highly recommend him to any bride, and I cannot say enough for what a great photographer he is. Taking pictures with him was one of my favorite parts of our wedding and they are beautiful. Hire Ruben!

I found that our photographer was very helpful and did a great job. However, I've found that the customer service of the company itself was no so helpful or good.

I am very disappointed in that aspect, but I feel that our pictures are a good representation of our day. I am looking forward to receiving our album.

We chose Fred Fox because we were very pleased with the work they did at my sisters wedding a few years ago. We have 2 photographers and I loved them - Steve and Joe were amazing. They were flexible, easy going and respectful. We didn't want too many formal pictures, but told them to just go with the flow. Some of the older generation people really wanted the formals, so Joe took some wonderful formals. The kids were acting goofy and absolutely adorable, and they caught it for us!
I love the easy online ordering, even though it is expensive.
We had a fun non-traditional wedding and the photographers captured that vibe in our photos. There were a million things that went wrong at our wedding, and I am so glad Joe and Steve were smart enough NOT to capture that stuff!

I loved my photographer (Abigail H)!!! It rained on my wedding day, but she was able to make the best of a bad situation and she still took beautiful pictures. I was able to meet with her before the wedding, but my fianc�e couldn't come. She called him separately to ask him some questions because she wanted to get to know us a little bit before our wedding day. She was fun, upbeat, but she was also QUICK, which was helpful because the rain screwed up our timing a little bit. When I was upset about the lack of outdoor pictures, she even offered to come back the next day and take more pictures if we wanted to get all dressed again!

The pictures were put online 2 weeks after our wedding, and our printed proofs were ready in less than 4 weeks. Overall, everything has worked really well so far.

The problem with using a place like Fred Fox is that you don't really know what you're going to get. We've had some trouble with the people at the Northbrook studio not answering the phone or calling back, and sometimes being less than friendly. We got a free engagement photo session with our photo package, and I am SO glad it was free. The photographer was rude, abrupt, and completely disinterested. After introductions and shaking hands (while he was speaking to someone else) we drove to where we were having the pictures done. When we got there five minutes later, he asked our names again because he had forgotten! He put us in a bunch of awkward, completely unnatural poses--and when we saw the proofs, they were all awkward and completely unnatural pictures! We never ordered any of those and ended up taking our own with a tripod. After this, we were nervous about our wedding photos, and were so relieved when we finally talked to Jose! He called to set up an appointment, and we met him at the Schaumburg studio (which is a nicer facility with more professional staff than Northbrook). Jose was fantastic--he told us more than once that he was there to serve us that day and take the pictures we wanted, not the ones he wanted, and he was friendly, helpful and professional on the wedding day. Even guests commented about how nice our photographer was. His pictures are beautiful and we are so pleased! I'd use Fred Fox again, but I'd probably go to the Schaumburg studio and I'd *definitely* request Jose!

Steven M. out of the Orland Park store was our photographer, and he was absolutely amazing!! We were very rushed for time, which was not any fault of his, but I still felt that he did as much as possible not to compromise my photos. My groom and some of the groomsmen rode their motorcycles to the church and we dropped them back off after the ceremony. While we were riding, Steve was behind them, and while stopped at a stoplight, he got out of his car to run in front of them to get a picture. This guy really knew what he was doing!! The office staff was knowledgable and professional. Make sure you get any promises in writing!

We sincerely regret using Fred Fox as our wedding day photographer. Let's see, where do I start... When the photographer showed up at my house, he hung out in kitchen and ate and bs'ed with the wedding party instead of taking photos. We specifically told him we wanted limited pictures at the church after the ceremony because we wanted to take them at our reception site, but he refused to listen and we ended up having to pay more for the limo because we were at the church for so long. I (the bride) had to tell the photographer that I wanted a picture with my brothers and sister. This is a shot that I specified in the wedding questionnaire that they had us fill out 6 months before the wedding and I also assumed that it was a standard photo the photographer would take without me having to ask. Also, the only picture I have with my family my eyes are closed. In the age of digital cameras, how does that happen? We felt he was lazy and just didn't care. We had a standard 5 and a half hour reception and the photographer tried to leave with 2 hours left. I told him I paid until the end of the reception and he must stay or I will be on the phone with Fred Fox first thing in the morning. Needless to say, he stayed. Also, he sat down and ate the entire time our guests were eating. We understood he would eat, but we figured he'd eat quickly and take the table shots we asked for. He also took only about 800 pictures. When we expressed our frustration with the limited photos he took, Fred Fox admitted the average number of pictures taken at a wedding should be about 1300.

When we booked our wedding, Fred Fox had a promotion going on where you received 10% back for any pictures ordered from your wedding. So for example, if your guests purchased $750 worth of pictures, you'd receive a check for $75. When we asked about this promotion, the woman working at the Orland Park office did not know about it so she called corporate. After she got off the phone, she said laughing, “Oh yea, we did have that going on at one time, but if people don't ask about it, we don't give it to them." I don't know what's worse, the shadiness or the stupidity. We finally did get the $78 check from them and it BOUNCED! I was furious, so I went in to talk to them about it. The same woman felt the need to explain why checks bounced, like I didn't know. As I was complaining to her about their incompetency, she had the nerve to ask me "Are you Italian?" which really upset me. I am Italian by the way.

We expressed our disappointment with Fred Fox photography in the survey they provided. Fred Fox himself did call us. However, we did not feel he cared about our situation. He did offer for us to re-take pictures at our reception site, but we declined because of the cost for my husband to rent another tux, get my hair and makeup done, etc. I let him know, I did not want any monetary reimbursements because nothing will ever bring back our wedding day. He did some fazed with our complaints; he probably couldn't wait to get back on the golf course.

The same woman felt the need to explain why checks bounced, like I didn't know. As I was complaining to her about their incompetency, she had the nerve to ask me "Are you Italian?" which really upset me. I am Italian by the way.

We expressed our disappointment with Fred Fox photography in the survey they provided. Fred Fox himself did call us. However, we did not feel he cared about our situation. He did offer for us to re-take pictures at our reception site, but we declined because of the cost for my husband to rent another tux, get my hair and makeup done, etc. I let him know, I did not want any monetary reimbursements because nothing will ever bring back our wedding day. He did some fazed with our complaints; he probably couldn't wait to get back on the golf course. Read less

We chose Ruben Ramos as our photographer from Fred Fox. Although we paid a lot extra for him, it was definitely worth the money. We have over 1,600 photos from our wedding day. They even broke them into pre-wedding, ceremony, formals, outdoor, portraits, and reception categories for easy viewing on their website. Fred Fox is definitely one of the more expensive photography vendors and Ruben is their most expensive photographer, but that is because he is the BEST!!! Every angle and location you would never dream of! And he's a lot of fun to work with too :-)

I've seen numerous weddings that have been shot by Fred Fox photographers, so when we got engaged I had no hesitation at heading over and booking them. Now that it's all over, I've debated whether I made the right decision. Everything before the wedding was great. The service was great, any questions I had were answered, etc. The day of the wedding, things started to go downhill. I would NOT reccommend Anna as a photographer for anyone. She was okay to me, but I found out after the fact was rude to my family and friends. After the wedding as we walked back to take pictures, a guest stopped to tell me congrats and Anna made sure to come back to literally yell at me because we had to take pictures. Many BIG pictures of the day were missed (the groom dancing with the mom - there were 3 pictures, none of their faces; the garter toss; my brother giving me away!!!; etc). Pictures that my family and I had requested were not taken, though we were told that we would "definitely get pictures of that". There was one picture taken of each family member walking in, even though they were bad pictures - (barely focused, arms over faces, etc). Important people in my life were barely photographed (there was ONE picture of my mom at my wedding, and all those of my sister (my MOH) were from the back). They started packing up to leave before even seeing if there were any other pictures we wanted taken (backdrop or candid).

In the end, we do have some good pictures, but I am HIGHLY disappointed in the pictures we did receive. Maybe give Fred Fox a try, but definitely DO NOT book Anna.

We used Fred Fox out of Naperville for our wedding photographer, and they did an amazing Job! Abby was our primary photographer, and She was phenomanal! We had a number of pictures that we knew we would want taken, and she went above and beyond what I had expected. We ended up with over 1,200 absolutely gorgeous pictures. She was very professional, and all of our guests said she was very friendly and wonderful at what she did! Fred fox is not a cheap company to use, but you really get what you pay for! I highly recommend Fred Fox and Abby!

When it came to planning our wedding, we spared no expense when it came to what we felt were the most important aspects of our day: entertainment and PHOTOGRAPHY. Both our parents had very few photos from their weddings because they hired friends who lost most of their pictures. We didn't want this for our wedding. A friend of ours had used Fred Fox photography for her wedding and her photos were exquisite. My husband was her DJ and he worked directly with the photographer that day and he said they were great to work with. From our first meeting, the staff was very thorough, professional, and helpful. We are a young couple, fans of contemporary photography, and Fred Fox does an amazing job with their albums. The day of the wedding, the photographers took about 2000 pictures total and were never intrusive. Make no mistake, we spent a lot of money, but in the end, you get what you pay for and the memories we captured thanks to Fred Fox will last a lifetime. The website was a great tool for viewing their photographers portfolios. Fred Fox does have good deals from time to time as well. For instance, we spoke with one of their reps at a bridal expo and they had a deal that if you booked by a certain date, you could get a CD with all unedited files and your proofs for free.

I was given Fred Fox's name by a friend who spoke very highly of them. I was not thrilled with their services, but I was not disappointed entirely either. I would give them a 6.5-7 out of 10. The main photographer who I got was kind of odd, and told a weird story. He also did poses that I thought would look bad, and I was right in the end. He did not get as many candids as I requested, and he even missed photographing my sisters' toast - he made them do a fake one for pictures, which obviously did not look real. The assistant photographer who came to the reception to do group photos and portraits was rude. She was very forceful in insisting that everyone get portraits - even against their will. When my sister went over to get hers taken, she asked the lady if she had chocolate on her mouth, and she responded curtly, "do you taste chocolate?!" Also, I was not thrilled with what we got for the high price we paid. We got a 10 pg album (front and back) for about $2300. We had to pay $300 extra to get a digital copy of all of the photos.

We were super glad we went with Fred Fox, we loved our photographer. He was very accommodating and stayed the entire night! We had fun with our pictures and we could tell Greg had fun too.

The only not so positive experience we had related to designing our album. It took us 2 months to get through and design our book and when we took it in we were told we got a little too creative with our layout. We were given two options, upgrade our book to accommodate our creativity or redesign our album. We ended up upgrading our book because we didn't want to go through redesigning our album. In hinds sight it was worth it!

The office staff never seemed to know what was going on. It should have been a sign from the beginning when I was told our save the dates were ready to be picked up - I drove to the office, they could not locate the save the dates, then realized they were shipped back to the main location. Since it was their mistake I would have assumed that they could have at least mailed the save the dates to my house, but NO. The cards had to be shipped from the main office back to my local location then I had to drive there again to pick them up.

I called several times to try and get a hold of my photographer and videographer. The office staff kept giving the run around. I did finally get to talk to both and they were very nice.

The day of the wedding the photographer did not capture many of the shots we requested.... Although he did get some good shots - it wasn't all we had hoped for. Upon receiving my pictures it was apparent that somehow the flash of the camera interacted with my make-up and gave me (and the other girls that got their make-up done) white under-eyes. Terry at the main office was a accomodating to deal with in trying to rectify the flaws. They claim the photographer had no way to tell that this was happening .... although he kept checking the digital images after snapping each picture and anyone with an iPhone could tell that my appearance was flawed. I was told fixing the pictures is too time-consuming for his team. Too bad for the lifelong memories that I will have when I look at all of my wedding pictures - we paid extra to buy the digital proofs of all of our pictures.

All and all my review may be a little harsh, but I would not recommend this company. They are cheap - but if I had it to do over I would spend more money on photographer .... afterall this is your only concrete wedding memories.

Absolutely horrible service. I have always heard great things about Fred Fox - we used them based on a friend's recommendation, but after using them for our wedding I am extremely disappointed and would never recommend them to a friend. The photographer was good (didn't do many artistic photos as requested though) but the service after the wedding was horrible. We received our proofs late and our "free" Thank Yous still haven't arrived 2.5 months after our wedding.

More details to follow...I highly recommend using another photography studio especially for the price. Fred Fox is priced high and you can definitely find another photography studio for the price, quality, and service!!! I'm sure there are many other disappointed and frustrated customers right now.

We actually didn't interview any other photographers than Fred Fox. I had just moved to Illinois from CA and had 4 months to finalize the details to our wedding. I was actually looking at it from a cost perspective first. I inquired to get more information regarding their services and actually got a call back from a photographer directly. We actually were on our way to the hospital as my future father in law was there and told him that we would have to call him back...when we finally made our appointment to review their services, I found out that the photographer that called me was one that worked alot at our venue, it was kismet! We met with Dennis a few days before the wedding to let him know what kind of pictures we wanted and concerns that we had and we took great notes and by the time the wedding day came, he was busy capturing our wonderful memories...we gave us a sample of pictures on my facebook so that the people who couldn't attend could see how great the wedding was. Not only is Dennis a great photograher, he was a great partner in our photographic wedding journey! I would recommend Fred Fox Studios for anyone and especially Dennis!
